Veterans of the Gauntlet
Human Gunslinger (Tristan's Character)
Born in Stormhome, Mindarin was orphaned at a very young age and was adopted by, and raised as a scion of, House Lyrandar. His adoptive parents would never answer his questions about the circumstances of his birth, and he eventually learned to give up such inquiries. As he grew older, though, he began to realize that he would never develop a Dragonmark, and would forever be relegated to crewing an airship, never to know the freedom of captaining a ship of his own.
Embittered by this knowledge, Mindarin vowed to make his own way in the world. He stole one of his family's muskets, a precious thing despite its decrepitude, and fled Stormhome to find his fortune. As he wandered, he taught himself the workings of the gun, and began to repair it and make it usable. He sought out the Red Gauntlet Regiment, and sold the recruiter on the uniqueness of his skills and the deadliness of his gun. Now he seeks glory with the Gauntlet, even if it means fighting on the side of Breland and against Aundair. He no longer feels any real loyalty to Lyrandar, and never really felt any for Aundair. Still, he cares about the well-being of his family, and will not raise his weapon against them.
